“The cloud model is so popular because it enables collaboration,”
The Fast Disk Acquisition System was created to image disks in record time, using RAID disks inside a closed unit. “Our first goal was to simplify and significantly speed up the collection process and image to our internal disks. The image was moved off FDAS via a network connection,”
“Analysts can remotely review the image that is on FDAS, or the image can be copied from the source drive directly onto a SANS via FDAS and bypass our internal storage,” Branigan said. “It is a natural next step.”
The inception of cloud-based forensics has eliminated the requirement for investigators to undergo such a characteristically cumbersome collection process – needing to pause imaging and plug the drive into a separate computer, just to see if the correct image was being copied in the first place. “Now, investigators can see the forensic image in real-time, and the network can already be set up, saving time, money and stress over producing forensically sound images,” Branigan stated.
FDAS is known for its ease of use, secure and fast system along with advanced integrated web interface. To learn more about this pioneering product and how cloud capabilities can strengthen the investigative process, visit http://www.cyanline.com.
